A dental hygienist is the person who does scaling and root planing (commonly referred to as cleaning), they also have many other duties such as applying fluoride, taking radiographs, education…etc, and basically specialize in the prevention of gum (periodontal) disease. Dentists don’t do scaling or “cleaning” very often, as they have more of a treatment focus.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

As long ago as 3000 BC, the ancient Egyptians constructed crude toothbrushes from twigs and leaves to clean their teeth. Similarly, other cultures such as the Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Indians cleaned their teeth with twigs. Some would fray one end of the twig so that it could penetrate between the teeth more effectively.

Modern day toothbrushing as a regular habit became prevalent in Europe after contact with the Muslim world in Africa and Asia where the people’s teeth remained healthy into old age. It was advised as a scientifically supported practice toward the end of the 17th century.

The modern toothbrush was developed in England in 1780. While languishing in jail, Thomas Addis decided to drill holes into a sheep’s tibia, and pulled through the bristles of boar hair. While he was credited with the discovery of the modern toothbrush, a similar design has since been discovered in China from 1400. In the United States, although toothbrushes were available at the end of the 19th century, the practice did not become widespread until after the Second World War, when U.S. soldiers continued the toothbrushing that had been required during their military service.
